In my fifty years here on earth, It is only now that I knew that avocado seeds are edible. Since childhood I've been eating avocado but we just throw the seeds. Or sometimes plant it. But now I know that it is also considered as a super food. Here are 5 benefits of eating avocado seeds. 1. Conquer cancer cells : The seeds contain flavonol, a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent and reduce tumor growth. 2. Diminish digestive issues : It contains more soluble fiber than any other food. 3. Heal your heart : the seeds can help lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular issues 4.Improve the immune strength : avocado seeds are the perfect immune boosters, 5. Alleviate aging : It rebuilds collagen, repairing cell damage and improving the look and feel of your skin It is used to treat skin problems and muscle and joint pains. 70% of the amino acids that this fruit is found in its seed. Maybe we can try this. Personally, I'll try this. I don't know if you will or not. Maybe, it depends on you, right?

Nope According to the article, it could be shredded or it could be brown in low heat then mashed or powderized.

This is something that has been doing the rounds of the Interweb Health Fanatics recently. I believe that it is mostly rubbish because, although there may be extracts of avocado seeds which can have some benefits, that doesn't mean to say that (a) avocado pits are good to eat or (b) that the supposed beneficial compounds can be absorbed properly by ingestion. You would do well to read the following article rather than listen to all those Internet quacks!
I'm not sure what's going on with the Internet lately, but there's some really crazy stuff coming out on there. One of the latest "trends" -- and I use quotations on that word only because I think there's a limited number of people who would actually try t

Actually I was really surprised when I read it. Even my parents did not know that this seed is edible. And I really wonder how. But on the second thought, maybe it could also be true. Maybe because of science. I am thinking also if I can take its taste. I don't know if I could take it. ,

@magallon It is very bitter and tasteless and, while it may contain soluble fibre, it really contains no more than any other nut. All of the other claims are just empty words because there is absolutely no proper research to back them up. If it really were a good food, don't you think that there would be some sort of tradition of using it, perhaps by drying it and grinding it into flour? There isn't any, as far as I know!

@owlwings Here is the way on how to use it. I Also got this from the article. Remove the fine layer of brown skin, grate it. As an option, brown it on low heat. With this you can make an infusion. Boil it for 5 minutes and let it sit for another 5 and drink throughout the day. It could also be used as garnish in salads, soups, stews or pasta. If you toast it enough you can mash it with the help of a coffee bean grinder and make it into powder.

How to eat the avocado seeds? I can't imagine the taste of the seeds, maybe it is bitter because when the seeds can drop on a white cloth, it can stain the cloth so I think it's bitter.

I don't know how it tastes because even me was surprised when I read it. But it is stated there that it is shredded and can be an effective skin exfoliant. Just rub it onto your skin.

I might not be able to do it just like other mylotters who responded. I think many people knows that avocado seed cannot be eaten. Actually, I asked my colleagues if they think that the avocado seed can be eaten said and they responded "no."

It was said that we don't have to chew it. We have to mashed it after letting it brown from low heat. Then we could mix it with other foods. But I think I will try its medicinal effect first. It is said also that it is good for joint pains.

Avocado Seeds seems to have a good anti-inflammatory ability and thus helps with arthritis and other joint diseases. I also need this for my joint pains.

Even my parents have never mentioned about this. Nobody from our family knows that this could be eaten because we just throw or plant the seeds of avocado.

I have planted a few avocado seeds in my life, but I would not consider to eat one : many seeds are containing toxins to protect them against animals, and it is the case of this one. You should be careful if you want to play the role of a rat lab with this one : it contains, among others, cyanogens, like apricot or apple seeds, and you can die if you eat too much of them...

I would like to know how you eat it? Those pits as I call them are very big and they would be hard to chew, breaking it down would be difficult. There are so many foods, that can do most of this already, so I would pass on this.

It was stated that we have to let it brown first under low heat then mashed it or have it powderized. We could restore it for future use. It is used as garnishing for salads or stew. Or you could rub it onto your skin to make it smooth and fine looking.
